We all know, or most of us, about the spectacular Truckin on 11-6-77 broome county show- but this MNS is truly exceptional- to think this is really less than 3 years old as a song- it is nicely jammed out- considering the jamming bridge at the end was just added in this year, this blows the mind- goldilocks MNS- not too short, not too long, not too spacey, not too straight- not the best perhaps, but far from the worst:

I really like 5/22/77. It's rather compact compared to some of the other ones kicking around out there, but Jerry's wobbly cowboy leads in the ending jam are fire.

I would also be interested in hearing other, potentially "better" MNS's.

9-25-81 in Bethlehem, PA is one of the all time Music Never Stops. Unfortunately, just as the ending jam really takes off the soundboard gets cut, but a somewhat decent aud saves the day. If you're fond of this time period, then this is a must have.

ive always been a huge fan of 5/7/77 for MNS....not very original but i think its famous for a reason. jerry goes crazy with the trills as the jam climaxes.

Liam,

The best is from DP18, and it's one of my favorite performances ever from the band (available for 99 cents from iTunes). I make five renditions the next best - 5/7/77, 6/9/77, 10/16/77, 11/6/77, and 1/22/78 (in no particular order).

Liam- I found an even better one just last night- 12-31-77

much attention is given to set 2 of this show and rightly so- but set 1 is shining too

9/3/77 is pretty ballsy right off the bat.
